Fire Prevention | Protect Your Home and Family

It’s important to protect your family with properly placed and installed smoke alarms. Remember, smoke alarms are only designed to last 7-10 years. If yours are over 10 years old, it’s time to replace!

Help increase awareness in your community about the life-saving benefits of smoke alarms.

Fire prevention tips to protect your family.

  • More than one-third (37 percent) of home fire deaths result from fires in which no smoke alarms are present.

As many homeowners seek to reduce their environmental impact when purchasing new houseplans through energy efficient appliances, solar panels, and utilizing eco-friendly building materials like bamboo, sustainable landscaping is also gaining popularity. Xeriscaping is a type of landscaping and gardening that reduces or eliminates the need for supplemental water from irrigation. Pronounced “zeer-i-scape,” it’s a combination of two Greek words: “xeros” (dry) and “scape” (view). At Modernize , they love the benefits of xeriscaping and how you can incorporate elements of this ecologically sustainable landscaping into the outdoor space of houseplans.
